How to prepare green tea the right way 

Green tea has been a popular beverage for centuries, known for its refreshing taste and numerous health benefits. However, many people are unsure about how to properly prepare green tea to maximise its flavour, aroma, and goodness.  

How to Prepare Green Tea: 

  1. Choose a high quality Dilmah Ceylon Green Tea of your choice. 
  1. Boil water: Bring fresh, filtered water to a boil in a kettle or pot. 
  1. Let the water cool: Allow the boiled water to cool down for a few minutes before pouring it over the tea leaves. The ideal temperature for green tea is between 160°F and 180°F (70°C and 80°C). 
  1. Measure the tea: Use one teaspoon of tea leaves/one tea bag per 220ml of water. Adjust the amount according to your taste preference. 
  1. Steep the tea: Pour the hot water over the tea leaves/tea bag and let it steep for 2-3 minutes. Do not oversteep the tea, as it can result in a bitter taste. 
  1. Strain and serve: Strain the tea leaves/discard the tea bag and enjoy. You can also add a slice of lemon for added flavour. 

FAQ: 

  1. Can I reuse green tea leaves?
    A. It is not recommended to reuse green tea leaves, as they can lose their flavour and health benefits after the first steeping.
  2. Can I add milk to green tea?
    A. Green tea is traditionally enjoyed without milk, as it can overpower the delicate flavour of the tea. However, you can add a splash of milk or cream if desired.
  3. Is it okay to drink green tea before bed?
    A. Green tea contains caffeine, which can interfere with sleep. It is best to avoid drinking green tea before bed or choose a decaffeinated variety.
  4. How many cups of green tea should I drink a day?
    A. The recommended daily intake of green tea is 3-4 cups per day. However, it is important to listen to your body and not overconsume, as too much green tea may have side effects.

With these simple steps, you can prepare a perfect cup of green tea that is both aromatic and healthy.
